When I lived in New York, my favorite time of the week to visit Wall Street was Sunday morning when it was almost vacant. The San Francisco Financial District is much the same that time of the week, with the few people there seeming to be on their way to North Beach, the Embarcadero, or Chinatown. Last Saturday, I started out at Market and Grant (above in 1934), and then I headed north and east to Montgomery.
At the intersection of Sacramento and Montgomery (above in 1918) the buildings in the foreground are much the same. Instead of the Bank of Italy towering on the left, we now see the Transamerica Pyramid. The building on the corner is the Anglo Bank Building.
Built in 1910, it’s Doric columns are attractive, and here is a bit more history on it.
Down the corner is Montgomery in California. I love the stylish woman above from 1922. I wonder if she is heading out with her stock broker for lunch. The Logan & Bryan sign is long gone, but it does seem to be the same arched doorway on the left.
Here we have Montgomery and Pine (in 1924 above) looking east towards Market.
